I've searched and found nothing about the difference, if any, in the gearing of the 4spd vs. the 5spd A/T. I was wondering if the first four gears are the same, and the fuel economy model has one taller gear, or are the gears shorter with a taller 5th gear?
I've not driven a 4spd A/T, or I probably could answer my question. Some reviews have said that the 4 A/T falls on it's face when upshifting because of the wide ratio. I haven't read an article on the 5spd A/T, they only mention it as an option.
